Mississippi Mud Brownies --
layers of chocolate, pecans, marshmallows and frosting
A bag of marshmallows, unused this summer, caused me to look for a recipe. I found this one in a Sunset travel magazine.
Very chocolaty, nutty and super sweet! Our guest said that it looks like "fancy fudge!" and she thought it reminded her of a holiday dessert.
